I received a PM from someone (or something) named muzrinkl earlier today saying "Hey, See this very very funny picture))))"

I did not click the link, but I decided to investigate it further. The link leads to a site known as "febl.ru."
Apparently it goes to a malicious webserver that leads you to thousands of random pages of crap.

I just thought I'd let you guys know (Particularly the mods and admins) before this stuff spreads.

Meh, SB bet me to it- that one shouldn't be causing any more problems. We'll try keep tabs on any others that crop up.

However until this gets sorted out, I'd like to advise all members to be very careful when going through your PMs. If you get one from a member you don't recognize, or you can't be sure of the security of a link, do not follow it.

Nah, Zukan's a pretty old spambot. He hasn't advertised Tramadol or Nissans yet so we let him run around in here for now.

I always guessed that Zukan was a spambot.

hehe anyways any staff reading this make a profile freild on the registration page that says something like whats the first letter in the word monkey and set it so people have to input m or M to register.. its like one of those are you human clicky things.. stops alot of spam bots... just remember to set it to something other than monkey... also set the users not to be able to send pm's untill they post 5 times. that stops alot of spam and you can catch him easy and direct a clean ban.

that's true, that pm limit thing is a good idea, but is that possible on IPB's?

I believe that you are talking about something like a: CAPTCHA system? Like this: Here

Things I made and am proud of on Edgeworks and other stuff:
-The Norm Meme
-The first time I was mentioned on the Edgeworks News Post, super cool of Nerrolken to have done this
-I was made a mod February 10th, 2011!

I don't think he was talking about that. I think he was saying having a picture of a monkey, and asking you to give the first letter for what it started with.

I hate the CAPTCHA system. After like 10 times i finally get one thats easy to understand.

the post limit might not be.
